Belieber Bryanna Debinder, 20, lost more than 122 pounds in an attempt to finally get Justin Bieber to notice her. Last year she became jealous of the slim girls who were pulled on stage by Bieber during his concerts. She vowed to lose weight and embarked on a diet.
Bryanna told Daily Mail: ‘Every time I saw him pull up a pretty, slim girl on stage, I just thought: ‘that should be me’. Everyone deserves a chance to be noticed by the person they love, and I’m his biggest fan. I just wanted to be the girl he sang to.’
The Penn State University psychology student’s obsession with Bieber, also 20, began when she saw him on MTV in 2009. Bryanna fell in love and there began an obsession that would change her life. Soon her room was filled with Justin Bieber memorabilia, including posters, dolls, duct tape and even a Justin Bieber shower curtain.
She bought his signature scents, Someday and The Key so she could smell like her idol at all times. Bryanna spent hours messaging him on Twitter, feeling a pang of jealousy when he replied to other girls’ tweets.
‘It did hurt my feelings,’ said Bryanna, who has never had a boyfriend. ‘But I understood. After all, he has 50 million followers, and gets thousands of tweets per day. ‘All of these beautiful girls are messaging him. He would never have noticed me.’
‘He is my absolute dream boyfriend,’ she said. ‘He is so gorgeous. I had everything planned in my head. I was going to tell him: ‘Thank you so much. I’ll always be there for you, and I love you.’
‘But there were so many people there, and I never got to speak to him properly.
He didn’t even notice me. After that, I’d watch his concerts and wish I could be the girl he pulls on stage.Then I’d finally have a chance to tell him.’ So, Bryanna cut out all of the junk food from her diet, and instead filled her fridge with fruit and vegetables.
She also watched YouTube exercise videos and did sit-ups at home. In just 12 months, she lost an impressive 122lbs and has dropped seven dress sizes to a UK size 8. Now, instead of hiding away in size-XL hoodies and jeans, Bryanna likes to show off her figure in dresses. ‘He’s the biggest star in the world, but he’s really made me feel like I’m part of his life. I just wish he’d Tweet me back, though.’
